.JACKSON", Wyo., June 11. (A. r.)
Jackson, after a year's trial' of petti
coat government, has found it good.
Half a century" ago the first Jury of
women to tie impaneled In the United
States was drawn in Wyoming and
twenty years later Wyoming; Insisted,
nnd won Its point, that it be admitted
to the Union without one single chang
in its constitutional provision giving
women equal suffrage rights with
men. Sinco then the feminist move
ment has developed astoundingly.
And so, wtlen the votes were counted
at Jackson Tuesday night. May 10, they
showed tho following results:
For Mayor Mrs: Grace Miller, $7;
L. W. Sup leer, 21. s
For council men Mrs. Genevieve
Van Vleck. 67t G. IL Blaine, 19; Mrs.
Faustina Raight, 66: Aimer Nelson, 18.
. Just a year ago this picturesque little
western town, with a population of 52
by the latest census, nestling beneath
the beetlng peaks of the Giant Tetons
in the heart of the famed Jackson s
Hole country, startled the nation by
turning oitt its man-made adminlstra
tion and installing a town government
made up entirely of women. The vic
tory was all the more notable because
of the fact that Mrs. Rose Crabtree
had been elected to the town couikII
over her own husband. Evidently the
women of Jackson had decided to spoil
tho town's glamorous reputation
the rendezvous for bad, bold, two-gun
The exact issue In the campaign a
year ago Is a matter for argument but
whatever It was the women, won de
cisively. This year It was the sam
thing over, a three to one landslide.
During their year's tenure, the five
women of thg town's administration
managed to keep Jackson clean, mor
ally and physically and In addition
they brought about a number of muni
cipal Improvements. They transform
ed what used to be country lanes into
city streets; they acquired a site for a
cemetery to take the place of the old
familiar burying ground; and they are
working on a plan for a modern, ade.
qnate water system to replace the
present system of irrigating ditches
fed by nearby Cache Creek. ,
Two of the councilwomen are hold
overs this year. The other two, along
with the mayor, stood pat on their rec.
ords. The mayor, Mrs. Miller, is the
wife of a wealthy, retired stockman
and rancher who is supervisor of the
Teton National Forest reserve. Of the
councilwomen, Mrs. Crabtree, runs a
hotel. Her husband is a building con-
